$1,000 donation to the Barre Business Association for Grove Street Park.
However, there is no Grove Street Park in Wonderland, MA 01005. There wasn’t in 2004 and there still isn’t in 2013. But what there is now is an exhaustive criminal investigation into this Hole’s finances. Just sayin’ and knowin’.
But I digress. The aerial map, courtesy of Google, confirms the nonexistent park. And dear Outsiders please don’t be fooled by the green space behind Brewer’s office. It’s not a park. As of the most recent triennial property valuation report recently filed by the Wonderland’s Assessors, the Town of Barre owns no land along Grove Street. http://www.scribd.com/doc/118735685/Lords-of-the-Soil-Wonderland-s-FY-13Valuations So where did the money go? There’s no record of the Barre Business Association ever reimbursing the Senator. There’s no Grove St. Park. And why give a business association $1k for a public park?
As for the Barre Business Association, despite the fact it’s registered in the Commonwealth, there’s no record of it ever filing its annual financial reports with the AGO’s Public Charities Division as prescribed by law (here we go again). The BBA, however, has filed two 990N forms with the IRS in 2007 and 2009:
Grace Gugliotti is a co-owner of the Harding Allen Estate (http://www.hardingallen.com/welcome.shtml)
The BBA has not filed with the IRS in more than two years. If the organization fails to file by September 15, 2013 it will have its take exempt status revoked according to federal tax law. Attorney Paul Cranston has numerous business ties in Wonderland which includes being on the Barre Savings Bank Board of Directors. He’s also the town’s longtime Moderator.
$1,000 dollars for a mysterious park . . . That’s business in Wonderland.
